Columbia’s Ziggin Rollup Capri follows the trend of versatile clothing: athletic pieces with high tech fabric that can be used for a variety of activities, yet they do not look out of place in the casual setting as well. In these economic times, it is important to have multifunctional pieces. We have been wearing the Ziggin Rollup to yoga class, out on hikes, and on bike ventures to the coffee shop. The Ziggin Rollup is super comfortable thanks to 2-way comfort stretch fabric and a gusseted leg/inner thigh that allows the capris to move with you while performing sunrise salutation or a pedal stroke on your bike. These bottoms are also extremely lightweight and breathable which is great during high intensity activity or while out in the heat.
The Ziggin Rollup Capri’s have a low rise, 2-button snap, and a draw cord to keep them in place. Our tester is 5’9” and around 138 lbs and the size 4 worked well for her. We also tested a pair of shorts from Columbia in size 4 and they were a tad snug, meaning each piece has a slightly different cut. Columbia states that the Ziggin Rollup has an active fit, which we agree with; plenty of space to move comfortably, yet snug enough to not loose your figure in. With the sizing changes here in the US, it might be best to try these on in the store first. There is a side zipper pocket on the outside of the thigh which allows you to stash items inside without dealing with the nagging feeling of items hitting your thigh (especially when riding your bike!) The Ziggin Rollups have a 18-inch inseam that is great for spring days, but when the heat comes, these Capri’s can be quickly rolled into Bermuda shorts thanks to a button/loop system that keeps the extra fabric in place. We really liked this feature and feel that these Capri’s would be a great summer travel piece because they are wrinkle resistant, quick drying, and have UPF 50 fabric (Omni-Shade technology), to keep you protected.
